NAME         top

       pcp-kube-pods - list Kubernetes pods to scan for running PCP

SYNOPSIS         top


DESCRIPTION         top

       pcp-kube-pods uses kubectl(1) to provide a list of IP addresses
       for PODs running in a local Kubenetes cluster, that may be
       running PCP services like pmcd(1) and pmproxy(1).

       It is used by the pmfind(1) command and the pmDiscoverServices(3)
       API as a ``shell'' command.

       The script invokes the kubectl get pod command line (see
       kubectl-get(1)) to discover IP addresses for pods.  The
       .status.podIP output field is extracted from the Kubernetes pod
       object(s).  Additional options can be specified via configuration
       file, such as -l service=database to restrict the results using
       Kubernetes pod labels.  The default configuration file is

       If no local kubectl command is found, nothing is reported and an
       exit code indicating success is returned.

DIAGNOSTICS         top

       All diagnostics produced are provided by the kubectl command.

       The kubectl exit status is propogated unchanged.

FILES         top

            default path to address discovery commands like pcp-kube-

            configuration file containing command line options passed to

            existence of this file causes the script to report nothing


       Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to
       parameterize the file and directory names used by PCP.  On each
       installation, the file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values
       for these variables.  The $PCP_CONF variable may be used to
       specify an alternative configuration file, as described in
